Side Hinge Basement Window

Side Hinge Basement Window


Please Note: this product does not meet IRC egress code size requirements.



You've already taken the first step towards transforming your dark and unused basement into a bright, vibrant, and actually livable space. While our side hinge basement window is not large enough to meet IRC egress code, it can bring extra light and ventilation to an otherwise dark and stuffy basement. That makes it perfect for living areas in a basement that are already served by an egress window. 

Our Side Hinge Basement Windows: 

  • Are affordable and easy-to-purchase

  • Come ready-made with a solid PVC frame and insulated glass

  • Are Energy Star Certified to keep your heating bill low and your basement cozy

  • Can be fully opened to maximize airflow

How do side hinge basement windows work?

As the name suggests, our side hinge basement window is, in fact, hinged on the side. This means that the window will swing inwards the same way that a door would swing inwards. The special hinges and their location allow the side hinge basement window to be fully opened allowing for maximum airflow and ventilation.

Our side hinge basement windows are available in white and two sizes:

  • 36" x 30" (5.30 sq. ft. clear opening)

We offer free standard shipping on all orders. We strive to always ensure that our shipments arrive within 7 days. Most arrive in 4 or fewer.

In some instances, customers require faster shipping than this. To accommodate for these instances, we do offer an expedited shipping option that will arrive in 1-2 business days in almost all instances. For customers that live in particularly remote areas, sometimes shipping this quickly is simply not possible. In the rare cases that this is true, we will notify the customer and provide them with the option of either free standard shipping or a full refund.   

Our shipping is carbon neutral. For every egress window that we ship, we contribute a portion to sustainability initiatives large enough to counteract the environmental impact of shipping. This helps us contribute to a sustainable future.
